“At the moment, this is the best [education law] book on the market. I like the way this book shows students about potential troubles and how they may go about avoiding legal hassles.”

–Fumie K. Hashimoto, Saint Martin’s College

“I believe that this is a very comprehensive text that generates a great deal of discussion in my class.”

–Leonard R. Goduto, Rider University

Teachers and the Law is the only text that provides a question and answer format that addresses every aspect of school law from a teacher’s and school administrator’s perspective. Clearly written and useful to both teachers and school administrators, this text focuses on legal issues reflecting current trends that are important to educators in the 21st century. The authors designed the text for school professionals seeking an easy to use reference on every important area of school law, including student and employee rights, the impact of the No Child Left Behind Act on those rights, and how to understand their legal rights and responsibilities.

New to This Edition

  • New material highlights controversies to be confronted during the beginning of the 21st century, including updated information on school choice addressing charter schools and the voucher system, the re-authorization of IDEA, copyright issues, bullying, hate speech, sexual harassment, affirmative action, rights of homosexuals, and zero tolerance policies.
  • A new chapter on No Child Left Behind and High Stakes Testing and their implications illustrates material that is essential to teachers and students.
  • The latest cases in educational case law have been added. All areas have been updated to correspond to the most recent court decisions.
  • New pedagogy such as chapter introductions and summaries assist understanding and ease of use.
  • An updated Instructor's Manual includes edited Supreme Court cases, references to related materials, discussion and examination questions, suggested teaching activities, key terms, and chapter topic discussion.
